    I can't believe we have been doing this for 19 years...

    Everyone please confirm if you will be back this year, and also give some thought to your keepers.

    We will do a live draft, so everyone please indicate your general availability and hopefully we can decide on a date/time that works for everyone.

    Here is the league site: http://fantasy.espn.com/baseball/league?leagueId=160439&seasonId=2019

    Keeper summary going into 2019 draft (before rollover). Remember, the player's keeper number must be below (not equal to) the slot number in order to be kept in that slot for 2019. Everyone else on your team can be considered to have a number of zero.

    First game of the season is March 20 in Tokyo (with regular opening day March 28), so need to get this sorted quickly. Maybe target the weekend of the 16th/17th for the draft? Let me know your day and time preference. Thanks.

    Yea, I'll be back in. It might be hard for me to make the draft, but I'll do my best.

    Flash brought it to my attention that he had made a trade with BleedCubbieBlue back in 2017 that had involved 2018 draft picks, but was overlooked and never processed. Because of this BleedCubbieBlue never got his pick upgrades in the 2018 draft. Feel free to view the original 2017 thread if you want to confirm. To make it right, the picks upgrades will instead take place this year as follows:

    BleedCubbieBlue gets 2nd and 3rd round picks from FLASH
    FLASH gets 5th and 6th round picks from BleedCubbieBlue

    This will affect the trade made last year with me, since it involved Flash's 3rd rounder for my 5th. Instead of a 3rd for 5th, we will do a 4th for 6th upgrade. So, that trade will be amended as follows:

    Fade gets 1st and 4th round picks from FLASH
    FLASH gets 4th and 6th round picks from Fade

    Also, here is the draft order for 2019. As always, the champion picks last, and remaining spots are determined by total fantasy points scored. God my team sucked last year.

    1. Expos Forever (6243)
    2. BleedCubbieBlue (6322)
    3. PhiSlammaJamma (6783)
    4. Jent's Llamas (7239)
    5. Sucka Free (7458)
    6. Red Nation (7642)
    7. The Aliens (7799)
    8. The Room (CHAMP)

    Man I don’t even understand this keeper thing anymore, who I can keep and who I can’t... I’m assuming if I tried to keep the same ones from last year that Springer is only one not eligible... see if anyone wants him or anyone else by trade... so confusing!!!

    I can only draft on 16th of that weekend, flying to Europe for work on 17th... any other time before that should work.

    It is understandable that you would get more confused as you get older. Unfortunately there was not much intelligence there to begin with so it would be even more difficult for you to comprehend the rules. :p

    Slot B (4 max) Cody Bellinger - 2
    Slot C (4 max) Aaron Judge - 2

    Also, @fadeaway if not everyone can do the following weeks draft date (16th or 17th) could we arrange to do it this coming weekend (9th or 10th)?

    Sunday would be best, but I could make anytime to work this weekend.......

    That means I need to set my keepers soon, but in process of moving and everything is packed, so can't find my 1997 fantasy baseball draft magazine to help me out and to cheap to buy a new one. Still willing to trade anyone if anyone is interested.
